FEW EVENTS IN MODERN HISTORY
are more deserving of rediscovery than Chinas Cultural Revolution of 1966-76. Few have so challenged traditional notions of what human society can be. Few have been as distorted and demonized. Want to know what revolutionary socialism was really like? From people who lived it... and loved it? Hear from youth who went to the countryside to work and learn from the peasants...artists who set out to create revolutionary art... women who struggled against feudal tradition... people who look back at this period as some of the best years of their lives. And learn from scholars whose work brings to life a crucial and vital legacy of liberation.

These videos cover the first two days of this symposium held at UC Berkeley in November, 2009. Running time is seven hours divided into six video segments linked to here:
